I have been going to physiatrist and getting brintellix for about 3 months.
Before taking any meds I constantly having suicidal thoughts very frequently. Then I start to go to physiatrist and taking brintellix 5mg for about 2 months, I was getting better until they change brintellix dose to 10mg. Now I’m back to where I was before taking any meds, getting worse and worse.

Do anyone know how to help and why?

I found the same when I went from 5mg to 10mg it kinda made intrusive thoughts amplify I have found after about 8 weeks that 5mg is best taken at night that way I dont get the nausea and just feel relaxed even 2.5mg would be ok for me I think..

The NIH does warn that these issues can be a side effect of this medication, and it is normal for them to worsen, when your dosage is raised. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, other mood changes, dry mouth, and weight changes.

However, if you really feel that you want to harm yourself, you should consult your doctor, as it could mean that this isn't the right medication for you to take.

Have either of you tried any others, or is this your first?

It is not a strict rule that you have to go up in your dosage, while it is always best to follow your doctor's instructions, ultimately, the final decision is up to you, so it is okay to stick with a dosage that works well for you.
